Lord Chelmsford Said .Buller is ‘one of the finest soldiers of the century’, so modest and reticent –that it was difficult to say for what individual deed he had got the Victoria Cross as he had been doing acts worthy of it all along the line

Lets just say everyone thought he might. But we will never know his true intentions.

hi joe .
In everything I have read on or about Cetswayo , he never said once he was going to invade Natal .
If he had done after Isandlwana who knows what the outcome would have been . So its fairly safe
to say in my opinion the answer is most certainly a no . A s he did think the british were on his side
so to speak , He did maintain that if he was invaded he would defend his lands .
cheers 90th.
